Hallelujah! And Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz! – February 16, 2015

The diarrhea has finally stopped!  Well, for a little while, at least.  I was so happy about this result that I went off the BRAT diet for lunch, and I paid for it a few hours later.  So it’s back to mostly a BRAT diet for now.

We had a great long weekend away at the Sonoma coast.  The weather was spectacular and it was wonderful to get away for a few days.  The Mountain Boys (our cats) missed us and greeted us warmly.  After unloading and taking a nap, Ted gave me a buzz!  He was tentative at first, but at some point he said it was kind of fun.  I think he did an awesome job!  You can’t see many bald spots, so for now I’m just going to keep it as a buzz.  Perhaps we’ll shave it this weekend.  I feel like GI Jane – it feels super cool!

Tomorrow I have to get a blood draw to see how my blood counts are doing. Wednesday I have an appointment with Dr. K to discuss the results and I assume confirm the treatment for Thursday’s chemo session.  I’ll ask her at that time if my treatments will be extended since I’ll have missed a dose of the Perjeta.

I came home to find that a FB friend had crocheted me a cloche and I love it!  Words can’t express,  though, how supported I feel from everyone.  It’s amazing and wonderful!
